Road to Laguna Seca
Click video to ride along on Pacific Coast Highway #1 from Hearst Castle through the Big Sur area and to the Laguna Seca Raceway. This stretch of the California coast is filled with rocky embankments jutting into the clear blue waters of the Pacific and sea lions and other marine life playing in the coves and on the beaches.
Big Sur is arguably one of the best ways to appreciate the natural wonders of the western coast. While the final destination of Laguna Seca is a treat for all motor sports fans and enthusiasts. Enjoy the ride.
I had resisted the urge to ride a motorcycle to work for quite some time. There were plenty of good reasons to stay in my quite-fun Acura CL Type S, ranging from the amount of stuff I carry to/from work each day, to reduced lunchtime errand options, to helmet hair I would have to live with all day, and the to-be-expected safety concerns. But, I finally succumbed last summer when the price of gas when flying past the $5/gallon mark. Months later, with gas just over $2/gallon, I am still riding…and not looking for excuses to get back in the car.
Although the Harley-Davidson intra-family differences may sometimes seem insignificant from afar, once astride the bikes, the distinctions are enormous. Some H-Ds excite me, while others leave me ambivalent—even when they’re similar models. One that moves me is the FLSTN Softail Deluxe.
Now, that’s not to say the Deluxe moves me very quickly. To the contrary, what I like so much about the bike is the level of satisfaction it provides when I’m simply cruising along, enjoying the scenery, be it urban or rural.
